We lose when we try to diminish God to our own understanding, we reflect our own humanity and frailness upon a limitless God. When we say that we are in Christ and then we go about holding up our prejudices and hatreds before the world on poster-boards declaring what segments of our society that the Lord hates; we have done little more than attempt to contain the UNCONTAINABLE God into our little box.
We diminish ourselves in our efforts to diminish the ALL-ENCOMPASSING Love of God. In this way we become the biggest loser, because we miss out on the fullness that He’s prepared for us. Putting God into a box fashioned by human thoughts and ways is one of the biggest disasters any Christian can undertake… moreover, it is IMPOSSIBLE to repress the Almighty God!
Isaiah 55:8-9 says “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.”
